The Nature of Doctrine: This enables him to discuss both the intra-confessional reconciliation and interreligious dialogue.

A most worthwhile read for those interested in this sort of thing. If Karl Barth delivered a mortal blow to liberalism, Lindbeck nailed the lid shut on the coffin.

In addition to his account of the nature of religion, George Lindbeck also addresses the relationship between Christianity and other religions, the resolution of historic doctrinal conflict among Christian communities, and the nature and task of theology itself.

This groundbreaking work lays the foundation for a theology based on a cultural-linguistic approach to religion and a regulative or rule theory of doctrine.

I thought his last chapter on hermeneutics was somewhat helpful, but also murky. Essentially, theology takes place locally and contextually.

Provocative, accessible, ecumenical, pragmatic — everything the classic primer on post-liberal theology ought to be. These norms, to repeat a point often made in this book, are like the rules of depth grammar, which linguists search for and may at times approximate but never grasp.

Good reading for anybody who wants to enter to systematic or fundamental theology. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Overall, I appreciate what Lindbeck is trying to do here: Remember me on this computer.
